**WE ARE NO LONGER Temporarily Reverting Tier 1 War Ban System**

After further discussion, the game team has made the decision not make adjustements to the ban system.
The previously proposed fix would have resolved the issue for Summoners who are on the cusp of T1/T2 play, and negatively impacted Alliances more securely in T1. Instead, we recommend that cusp Alliances switch to Manual Placement to your members to place the allotted 5 Ban Champions limit there.

Apologies for the back and forth, and for any confusion.

Warlock’s sp2 is broken

Hello global,
Today I was fighting against domino with my warlock in AW.
At one point I parry stunned her, hit a medium and immediately launched sp2.
However, she was able to block it because warlock started sp2 animation far away from domino.
I remember this was known bug (sp1 & sp2 broken) and was fixed in Oct or Nov 2020.
But, it seems the bug still persists.
Hope Kabam will acknowledge and fix this.

    I've noticed this as well. Warlocks special 2 pushes him back for whatever reason, and in most cases it won't connect with the opponent.

    Yes I noticed the same against mutiple champs in questing and arena too ..and this is really annoying when it is supposed to be hit pefectly but opponent blocks from the 1st hit ..

    To be fair you only hit once and did the special I normally finish a combo then use it
    But I am not gonna lie the bug is there

    @odishika123 Thank you for your comment.
    This is duel only where I just tried to show how this bug happens.
    In some situations, you may need to immediately launch sp1/sp2 after 1st medium hit.

    Tried it on ROL WS. For me seems like always a problem when I do “ML” from a not-stunned situation and then SP2.
    A single “M” rushed in (not from parry) and then SP2 was working fine for me (Warlock remained close)

    Did notice though (similar to video) that single “M” from parry (but letting the stun time wear down a little before M) and then SP2 which thus takes place after Parry expired (but immediately after the “M”) did indeed take Warlock backwards before the SP2.
    So might have something to do with opponents having been stunned and coming off from the stun during the attempted M-SP2.

    Video case you accomplished that situation by Parry and manually retreating before then rushing with “M”. I just delayed a little before starting the “M”. But seemed to have same “backward before SP2 happens” effect.

    I often whiffed special 2 attacks with warlock when attempting after a single medium.

    I’ve found that doing either MM or ML before throwing the sp2 stops the attack from whiffing

    Many champions specials whiff when attempting 1 or 2 hit combo and then chain the special. It depends on the champion animation.
    For example Domino is likely to whiff her sp1, if you fire it after her first medium.
    Personally I go deep to at least a 4 hits combo before firing a special with these champs at important fights, to avoid risking a whiff.

    Domino's specials animation allows the opponent to recover and block if you chain it with 1 medium.
    In warlock's case warlock is getting pushed back and then the opponent is blocking the whole special. It shouldn't be that way. It's a bug.

    I had the same thing happen to me in AQ last night. Never had an issue launching his sp2 after the first medium attack before. Next time I launched it I made sure it was after a light attack mid combo and had no problem landing it.
